For a bit of fun on a rainy Friday: Yesterday twitter was inundated by clever folk using the #lessinterestingbooks hashtag. How’s it work (for you twitter uninclined)? Take the title of a famous book and twist it around into a blander/funnier/less interesting rendition!
Here are some of the ones I came up with:
The Sword of Sha Na Na by Terry Brooks
Of Mucus and Jam by Stina Leicht
Canadian Gods by Neil Gaiman
Kinda Quiet and Sorta Far Away by Jonathan Safran Foer
The Middle-aged Man’s War by John Scalzi
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azerbaijan by J.K. Rowling
Lord of the Files by William Golding
The Old Man and the Pee by Ernest Hemingway
East of Aidan by John Steinbeck
And, to cap things off, Sam Sykes‘ favourite:
The Crystal Shart by R.A. Salvatore
So, I thought it’d fun to open the floor to you, my lovely readers, and see what your collective wit can come up with! Post away with your favourite #lessinterestingbooks in the comments section below, or let me know some of your favourites that you stumbled across yesterday on twitter!
